Heavy rain, flooding close some Allegheny County roads
Heavy rain snarled traffic in Allegheny County's more flood-prone pockets Friday morning.
According to county social media, the Mansfield Bridge remained closed in both directions about 10:30 a.m. because of flooding on the McKeesport/Glassport side.
The southbound lanes of Route 837 below the Duquesne-McKeesport Bridge also were closed, according to county tweets. Additionally, Streets Run Road at Schuette Drive is closed in Baldwin, according to Tribune-Review news partner WPXI-TV.
